You are invited to attend an April public policy forum focused on new directions for education in technical training and careers.  Sponsored by the Institute for Public Policy and Social Research (IPPSR), the forum is planned for Wednesday, April 18 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. directly across from the Capitol grounds in the Anderson House Office Building, 5th floor Mackinac Room, 124 North Capitol Avenue in downtown Lansing. There is no charge to attend, but registration is required for planning purposes. A light lunch is provided on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The Marshall Plan for Talent is a statewide commitment to invest, develop and attract technical talent in Michigan. Fully supported by Michigan’s top CEOs, the plan calls on tight collaboration between education and business sectors to fill a talent gap found in the Great Lakes region’s leading industries, including manufacturing, energy, and healthcare. Set out to be a national model for innovative approaches in strengthening the talent pipeline, the plan has strong implication for families in Michigan and their economic success. How does the plan impact today’s educators and students? How are current employees being trained and transitioned to information technology jobs, computer science occupations and manufacturing’s high-tech trades? How will the Marshall Plan’s connections between schools and the work place differ from the traditional partnerships? April’s forum will present the Marshall Plan for Talent and review these question prior to audience discussion.
We are pleased to have the following panel of experts join us for a well-informed discussion of the new directions for career education in Michigan:
Jeremy Hendges, Chief Deputy Director
